Picture and Story By: Charlotte Harper

    How do you show someone how much you love them?  In this touching story, Little Nutbrown Hare is trying to tell Big Nutbrown Hare how much she loves him.

    She tries to show him by stretching her arms out as wide as they could go.  But Big Nutbrown Hare stretches his arms out even wider!  Little Nutbrown Hare tries many different ways to show Big Nutbrown Hare how much she cares for him.  Big Nutbrown Hare always does the same thing bigger or better.

    In the end, Big Nutbrown Hare lays Little Nutbrown Hare in her bed of leaves and she falls asleep.  Big Nutbrown Hare kisses her on her head and then says, "I love you right up to the moon and back".

    This is a wonderful story to read with your loved ones at bedtime.  You can make it part of your nighttime routine to help bring peaceful sleep!
